Sparing no expense, Kanye West and Kim Kardashian hired a personal chauffeur for each of their 200 guests at their recent wedding, transporting them in style between venues for the weekend-long affair. E! estimated the total wedding costs equaled around $2.8 million – not counting the pre-nuptial week spent in Paris.
"Each guest has his own personal chauffeur with a Mercedes-Benz S500 Hybrid," Vogue's André Talley wrote. Each guest was also provided personal security.
While not everyone needs 200 chauffeur's for their own events, hiring drivers can be an effective way to deliver guests at weddings, dinner parties and other soirées in the lap of luxury. This not only makes an impression, but puts everyone in a great mood for the rest of the evening.
Of course, West and Kardashian's wedding was also catered by three-Michelin-star restaurateur Giorgio Pinchiorri, acting as personal chef for the event. The eight-course meal included homemade mezzelune pasta, monkfish filet, beef filet and strawberry sorbet, according to US Magazine.
The event was held at Valentino Garavani's Château de Wideville, once the home to one of King Louis XIV's maîtresse d'amour, according to Vogue.
